Remove Featured Article Status

  1. Baby Luigi (talk) I did not nominate this, but the nominator's reasoning is valid: "This page need to be rewritten. The "Other appearances, cameos and references" needs to go to the main article, and the page needs a overall trimming. Also, if you look closely, you can see that section Super Mario Bros.: Peach-hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen! is written short. So, yeah. The page need to be unfeature.". It pretty much covers the rewrite template on top of the page. It desperately needs major clean-up before it can get featured.
  2. LeftyGreenMario (talk) I put that template in the first place. This article has splendid amount of information, but a lot of sections are a full-blown plot "synopsis" with 5+ paragraphs. If not, sections with fewer paragraphs have huge ones that are barely followable. We should aim for only a summary for each game while we leave the intricate plot details in its respective article. That means we should be aiming for 3-5 paragraphs. Maybe it's just me, but I find myself skimming through the article because the information feels so overwhelming. What's bad is that this article crashes slower browsers, which shows its sheer size. Also, while many comics have extraordinary coverage, some other sections are bare, including the Super Mario-Kun. The General Information section is teeming with information, but it almost seems overwhelming as well. I deeply appreciate the incredible effort poured into this, and I didn't have the heart to unfeature the article, but at the same time, I don't want to have a featured article like this. Until these major problems have been solved, I'm not going to let this be continued to be featured.
  3. GreenDisaster (talk) Per all.
  4. Pinkie Pie (talk) I am the one who nominate this. Anyways, per all.
  5. King Pikante (talk) Per all.
  6. ParaLemmy1234 (talk) Per all.
  7. Yoshi876 (talk) Although not concrete, I'm guessing Bowser has appeared on Super-Mario Kun and I can't see it anywhere on the article.

Because the user has been blocked, this can be nominated for unfeaturing at any time. Yoshi876 (talk)

No, all blocking does is remove the nominator's vote. Anyone else can vote in this. Baby Luigi (talk)
The Mario page has several paragraphs, yet it's featured. Why should this be unfeatured then? ParaLemmy1234 (talk)

@ParaLemmy: What are you talking about? Mario isn't featured. Baby Luigi (talk)

Yoshi876: The Super Mario-Kun comic is mentioned in the " Other Appearances, Cameos and References" section, which the section itself is mostly a big no-no (it needs to be incorporated into the main section). LeftyGreenMario (talk)
